    Default Clutch Slipping or just me

    06 Plate 2.2 Direct - 38k miles

    When i accelerate away hard and then rapidly change gear it sounds as if the car is still revving up, is this normal or do you think the clutch is on its way out, also when changing gears normally like a small rumble i feel through the gear stick ?

    Well maybe, I'm only saying what was happening to the A3, it would hold the revs, after a couple of weeks it just got worse so you're best getting it looked at. It is gonna cost you though if it is.

    I don't think it will be covered, it's like tyres they wear out. Call the dealer but remember main dealer prices are gonna be expensive!
